First announced earlier this month, the Evernote iOS app has been updated to add a work chat feature.
In version 7.6 of the app, read/write sharing of single notes has been enabled while read/write access of notebooks can now be handled by all users. That’s to help to chat function work properly.
All of the discussion can be done directly in the app. Evernote talked more about the feature in a recent blog post:
Work Chat lets you discuss your work with the individuals that will help you get it done, right in Evernote. Share notes and notebooks, exchange ideas, and get feedback from colleagues in an instant. You can share and collaborate with as many, or as few, people as you like. The notes and notebooks that you reference will show up in the chats so that they’re easy to open and find.
Users can also take advantage of work chat in all other versions of Evernote.
Premium subscribers will also see the new context feature that displays notes, articles, and people related to what they are currently working on.
Also, those users can view related articles from sources like The Wall Street Journal.
The Evernote app is universal and designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded now for free.
A premium subscription can be unlocked with an in-app purchase of $4.99 per month or $44.99 per year. Some other premium perks include offline access to notebooks, security lock with Touch ID or passcode, and PDF annotation capability.
Before the most recent update, the last major changes to the app arrived in version 7.5 in mid-September. One of the nicest improvements was a Web clipping capability that allows user to save photos, documents, and Web pages as notes. That’s thanks to the new app extensions in iOS 8.
